I have finally found a seat. It's a temporary seat but it's a seat nonetheless. The past few weeks were a total whirlwind; last minute packing, preparing my house for the new residents, having intermittent access to a car, then traveling to DC. I've finally settled down but I am officially out of here on August 7 at 2:53 pm. I arrive in Abu Dhabi on August 8 at 7:30 pm.
Throughout this transition, I realized that I needed to redefine the blog and purpose for writing (many of my blogger peeps are going through this as well).
I am not a fashion blogger and never pretended to be. My days on social media began on diet/health message boards, then BlackVoices, then blogging. I happened upon a style blog in 2005 or so in which a Caucasian lady with red, then blonde, then red hair use to post her outfits throughout the week. From her blog, I happened upon Ms. Budget Chic. I thought the two of them we the most innovative and stylish by bringing something new to the internet. Ms. Budget Chic did a feature on Fashion Du Jour and Fashionista Next Door, then I become hooked on fashion blogs. From there, I frequented more fashion blogs, started attending fashion events, and developed a ton of valuable friendships. Thus the alignment with fashion blogs.
Her Perfect Black Dress is a symbol of female diaspora. It speaks to revelations, creations, relationships, health, and fashion too. I am a writer who took a slight detour through the field of education. My core speaks to print media and this is what I shall follow. You guys have been abundantly supportive of every post, every invitation, and even in my transition to Abu Dhabi.
I thank you with all that I have.
Now, stay tuned....I'm clearing my throat so that you may hear my real voice.
